Pinned topic Browser based 5250 console access

‏2012-10-04T08:00:38Z |
is there any browser based 5250 console access tool available for IBM i to access from Windows desktop ?? The IBM Personal communications requires client to be installed, which is not permitted on my desktop.

    The company I work for, Profound Logic, offers a web-based 5250 emulator called "Genie". This is a commercial product, but it runs on the server and does not require client-side installation. It does not require Java, and lets you do stuff like reface (make more gui-like) your 5250 screens, if desired.
    Learn more here: http://www.profoundlogic.com/prouigenie.rpgsp

    Having said that, this does not act as a "console" (system console.) But, I think, maybe you're just looking for 5250 access without installing emulation sofware on the PCs, right?

    this is a java app (rather than browser based) but it doesn't require any install to be done (assuming you have a java runtime on you desktop)

    "IBM i Access Client Solutions" technology preview (link below)

    It has 5250 emulation for LAN Console & a Virtual Control Panel with a graphical interface (amongst lots of other stuff).

    No install required (it does require that you have a java runtime installed however)

    I'm using it as a console and control panel in a production environment & it's been working flawlessly in that role (i haven't tried the other features)
